    Of course they won't label this a hate crime, because it was black on white. But would motive would cause an animal like this to run up behind a stranger and give her a vicious blow to the head? His hatred hatred of white skin is the only answer!

    I agree this guy needs to be caught and punished, but what in that video tells you it was a hate crime besides him being black and her being white.:confused:

    There's a good chance Matthew will jump in saying blacks are the worlds biggest evil just because the criminal in the video just happens to be black. Anyone can bring in a video of a random act of violence were the assailant just happens to be white, he'd probably justify it with"Blacks do it more".

    The case affirming the constitutionality of enhanced sentencing when race is a motive was a black on white crime: Wisconsin v. Mitchell, 508 U.S. 47 (1993).

    So much for the OP’s ‘reasoning’ that the incident in the link wouldn’t be considered as such.

    A white woman is just watch, not saying anything, didn't know he was there and then BAM he hits her blind side with deadly force, he doesn't steal anything, he doesn't kidnap her nor rape her, what else could his motivation be?

    Maybe they've met before and he was angry with her, could be an act of revenge(I'm sure she did nothing to deserve that, but this is how criminals think), or he could be another crazy guy on the streets and those come in all colors.

    Calling it a hate crime doesn't make it so, how would you react to the same crime but white on black? I'd see it as another criminal that belongs in prison and what would you say, make up some excuse for him? I know there's hate crimes against whites, but it doesn't justify hate crimes on blacks. I wish "hate crime" in general would stop, but it's just one of many pointless motives.

    Hate crime status needs to be abolished. A crime is a crime.

    The problem with your position on this as I see it is that we have no idea if she had not done or said something to him a few blocks before the incident and walked away. By the time she got to the camera she could have put the incident behind her and thought it was over.

    Yes, he should be arrested, tried and convicted for assault, but you cannot tell that it was hate related simply from that video.

    Not only that, but hate crimes are a travesty of justice against victims of crimes that are not deemed "hate related".

    Judges have always considered specific factors of a crime when determining punishment, race is as legitimate a factor as any other.
